This brew is extremely dark, with reddish highlights when held to the light. The head is tan and fairly this. A brilliant chocolate and malt aroma dominates the beer. Reminiscent of a chocolate malted mild in the smell, it is an engaging and enticing aroma. The taste is balanced, and not as sweet as I expected. Flavorful. It has a mildly toasted and breads character, as well as the chocolate. Somewhat chalky. Full in body and good.

This beer is over the top! The only way i could express the pleasure is to compare it to a night on the beach with a beautiful woman (m wife), a fine cigar,, a fine beer, and soft music off in the distance. How could I better express my satisfaction?

I love the dark color, but I feel fooled by the name. While I smelled the chocolate, I noticed vanilla! Did you? Very thin head that seem to dissipate quickly.

The aroma of dark chocolate is stronger than the flavor, which I find typical of chocolate brews. (I would like more chocolate.)

This had a pleasant cola-like feel, but this seemed more like a Schwarzbeir lager. It didn't seem to have the full ale flavor. It had a bright finish. Maybe I'll try another though.
